Activity
We are going to do the same thing as we did with the extensions, except this time we are going to focus on how these Apps could enhance your curriculum.
  1. Take about 30 minutes to go through the list below or search the Chrome Web Store on your own.
  2. Find and install ones that might fit into an existing or new lesson.
  3. Play with them. Create something, see how it works, and think about where they could fit.
  4. Pick one to share (on the list or one you found at the Chrome Web Store). On your assigned Presentation Slide, list:
    • Name of the App
    • What it does in one sentence
    • Screenshot or other image (icon)
Sharing
Get ready to demo your favorite one. Everyone is going to share their favorite.
